Great house in the country but very close to town

  • 5 of 5

We loved the yellow house and it was well-equipped and very comfortable for our stay. It is right off airport way so close to Middleton and Madison, but very quiet. We really enjoyed all of the flowers, and wildlife including spring frogs croaking at night. Lots of room and comfortable beds. We also loved the dozen fresh eggs and visiting the chickens! Would stay here again anytime.

Lovely place to spend a spring weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here, and enjoyed the peaceful country location, which is just minutes outside Middleton. It was raining when we arrived, but the attached garage let us unpack in dry comfort. There is a small wetlands across the road, which was busy with frogs, herons and sandhill cranes. Tulips around the house were ready to bloom, as was a magnolia. There is a dog park a ten minute walk from the house, which was great for our two spaniels. (There is even a nearby car wash that has a convenient dog wash facility, should you need that!) We grilled good Wisconsin brats out on the deck one of the evenings. The kitchen is well-equipped, including a stand mixer and a blender. The beds were fine, bathrooms had nice towels, and everything was very clean and functional. Joan brought us gorgeous fresh eggs from her hens, with blue and tan and green shells. We loved being here, and definitely hope to return.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding in Cross Plains and came from 3 states. This house and property fit our needs very well, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the garden, deck, trivial pursuit game, and fire pit. We even enjoyed the airplanes taking off and landing. My dog loved running around the yard. We were greeted by a beautiful sunrise our last day. It was peaceful and a perfect place for us to catch up with family. We highly recommend it.

Great place for a group, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group stay for a long weekend getaway and had a great visit. The place is large enough for a group with plenty of place to sleep, and plenty of place to spread out between the sun room, dining room, and living room. Amenities and everything were great, would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Thanks again!

Beautiful house and property, perfect for our bachelorette party needs!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joan's property in Middleton the weekend of July 29-31. We had a house full of young ladies celebrating my daughter's bachelorette party. The house was perfect size for our group of ladies. The house is obviously well taken care of and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, etc., for our needs. The 2 large bathrooms easily handled all the ladies getting ready every morning. There was plenty of living room and dining room space, and of course we loved the deck outside in the backyard. We were within 8 minutes of downtown Middleton where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Friday night. We toured the Capitol Brewery in Middleton on Saturday and then went back and just enjoyed the house and spending time with my daughter's closest friends. This was exactly what my daughter wanted for her bachelorette party and I am so thankful for Joan for letting us rent out the house for this occasion. It was nice knowing they were just a minute away down the road if any issues arose. I would recommend this rental and am very pleased with the entire process of renting it.
